what to see on the island of giglio

Isola del Giglio is a real pearl in the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Located to the west of Monte Argentario and just 13 km from Porto Santo Stefano, the island is mountainous and rocky and still has very unspoiled and wild aspects. The crystalline sea and the jagged and inaccessible coast certainly make it a suitable destination for lovers of the sea and the truest nature.

Isola del Giglio has a small and welcoming port. A village has sprung up around it, which will welcome you with colorful houses, small artisan shops, bars and restaurants, where naturally fresh fish dishes are tasted for all tastes.

But the island of Giglio is also history and culture. In fact, on the top of the island stands Giglio Castello, the ancient village, of medieval origins, enclosed within its walls. The village winds through a network of alleys and houses, with its Rocca Aldobrandesca and the Church of San Pietro Apostolo. Getting lost in the alleys of the castle you can enjoy beautiful views, and stop to sip a glass of Ansonica wine in one of the characteristic places, or perhaps directly in a cellar.

In fact, Giglio also has an important wine heritage. Here, despite the impervious rock and a difficult land, the ancient tradition of terraced vineyards is carried on, and the native Ansonica vine is cultivated, called by the locals “Ansonaca”. The landscape of the island is at times barren, at times almost lunar.

In addition to the countless coves that line the island, most of which can only be reached by boat, the main beaches of the island are the Campese beach, located to the west, where the sun never seems to set, the Cannelle beach, the Arenella beach, and the Caldane, located to the east.

Along the island there are numerous and fascinating paths, which have been traveled by its inhabitants since ancient times. Walking through them you can fully breathe the atmosphere of the island, imbued with an ancient and Mediterranean charm.
